Anna Noctuelle discovered Shibari in 2004 and has worked with this art form as a model, performer and teacher across Europe and for internationally known riggers. With her background in classical ballet and as a yoga student, Anna Noctuelle has exceptional body awareness skills in ropes and suspension. Her background in dance and her interest in Buddhism and meditation also influence her aesthetic and philosophical approach to Shibari. She works with many different styles but her emotional home is Semenawa and Naka Ryu. For her, Kinbaku is a practice that can teach you life, vision and maybe even wisdom.

His interests reach beyond bondage to include poetry, dance, sound and video design, all of which feed into his work as a shibari artist.
